    82: Running an ad agency during the Ukraine war

    82: Running an ad agency during the Ukraine war

    Only nine weeks ago, creative agency Banda was cracking on with agency work, from the sanctity of their Kyiv-based studio. Sadly, all that has changed when the country was invaded by Russia sparking a brutal and devastating war.
    Campaign's Imogen Watson and Arvind Hickman catch up with Banda co-owner Yaroslav Serdiuk and digital director Andrey Pavlov to discuss how their lives have changed, the challenges of running an agency during conflict and the powerful campaigns they have created that have raised spirits and rallied a ‘brave’ nation in its battle against Russia.
    Banda is looking for more work to keep their teams busy while Ukraine's economy is largely closed. If you have any projects for the agency to dig into, please email: newbusiness@heybanda.com. To support the effort in Ukraine, please visit standwithukraine.super.site.

    80: What school students think about advertising & how to change perceptions

    The media agency UM has taken a fresh approach to educating high school students about advertising and media. Campaign was invited to its Futureproof Academy to ask four Springwest Academy students – Rhianna, Lucius, Dilyanna and Koby – what they thought about the industry and whether they would consider a career in it. We also speak to their teacher Emily Chapman about what makes a good outreach programme, and UM's EMEA chief communications and culture officer Alice Archer about what she has learnt.

    79: How can adland get over the age-old problem of ageism?

    79: How can adland get over the age-old problem of ageism?

    Ageism in advertising has been a problem for many years. In fact, adland has been talking about the commercial importance of targeting the over 50s but, in reality, has ignored the problem.
    Older adults remain ignored by marketers, appearing in less than 15% of media images. 
    It seems strange when those aged 50 and older account for 50% of consumer spending; predicted to rise to 63% by 2040. 
    In this episode, International Longevity Centre director David Sinclair is joined by MullenLowe Group UK chief executive Jeremy Hine and the7stars owner Jenny Biggam to discuss ageism in advertising.
